While many animals still face extinction risks, the actions taken by conservation groups and local governments have helped slow down this cycle for some species and even turn it around for others. Thanks to the Endangered Species Act, established in 1973, 85% of the animals and plants under its protection are now on their way to recovery!

This infographic takes a closer look at 26 of the animals brought back from the brink of extinction. This discusses what led them to become endangered, the low numbers they achieved during that period, and the reasons behind their species ' recovery.

Even the United States. During the 1940s, National Emblem, the bald eagle, became nearly extinct due to habitat loss, illegal shooting, and pesticide use. This important symbol of the numbers of our nation has recovered enough thanks to the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act to be removed from the near-extinction list in 2007.
